Security officer at CU testifies at murder trial
GOLDSBORO, N.C. (8/17/10)--A security chief at Marine FCU testified Friday in a high-profile murder trial in eastern North Carolina. Frank Davis, who is in charge of security at the $646.2 million-asset, Jacksonville, N.C.-based credit union, testified that Marine Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, who went missing in December 2007, used her credit union debit card five times that month (WRAL.com Aug. 13). Cesar Laurean, a former Camp Lejeune (N.C.) Marine, is charged with killing Lauterbach in December 2007, then burying her body in a fire pit in the backyard of his Jacksonville home. Lauterbach was eight months pregnant at the time of her death. Her remains were recovered in January 2008, WRAL said. Lauterbach had accused Laurean of raping her in the spring of 2007, and although she later recanted the allegation, Camp Lejeune officials continued their investigation of the matter until she died, WRAL said. On Dec. 14, the security camera at one ATM captured an image of a pregnant woman withdrawing $500, Davis testified. Lauterbach’s roommate and other witnesses testified Thursday that they didn’t see her after Dec. 14, WRAL said. On Christmas Eve, the security camera at a different ATM showed a man tried several times to withdraw $400 to $500 using Lauterbach’s credit union card, Davis testified. The transaction was declined twice because of an incorrect identification code, and the transaction was denied the other two times because of insufficient funds in the account, he said. Prosecutors attempted to get Davis to compare the images on the security camera with the photo in Laurean’s account file at Marine FCU, but Superior Court Judge Osmond Smith stopped him after the defense objected, saying he wasn’t an expert in facial recognition, WRAL said.
